Sharing Stories, Learning Cultures

Culture Collage is an innovative and educational volunteer opportunity that will connect international students from Vancouver Island University with local children and allow them to share their story. As a Culture Collage volunteer, they’ll receive 6 weeks of training that includes leadership development, presentation skills, and intercultural awareness. After completing the training, they’ll visit elementary schools around Nanaimo to introduce their own culture to children in grade 3 classes (three 1.5-hour class visits over a 4-week period).
